The day I've waited for has finally arrived! Jessi is going to school! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE her with all my heart and am truly blessed to be a stay-at-home-mom these past (nearly) 7 years. For the past four years for at least a few hours a day (until John went into all day kindergarten) it's been just me and Jessi during the day. She's a pretty spirited little girl. Very imaginative and lively.
All my children stopped taking regular naps by a year and a half old, so I've rarely had any "quiet" time during the day in YEARS! Jessi's always wanted to go to school and often plays "school" with her dolls, barbies or stuffed animals. She pretends to be the teacher and her toys are her students. She really has quite the imagination. The day has come for her to venture out into a small piece of the world and begin a new chapter in her childhood. A chapter filled with learning her "A B C's", "1 2 3's", learning how to write her name, read books, make master pieces during art, interact with other children, build friendships and learn rules and schedules.
I'm excited to find out how her first day of Pre-K went!
